the environment and something that was set in the debate last week. the president had the lead on energy and he said we were dealing now more than ever for gas and oil and he's right. then mr. romney came back with our bottle saying, mr. president, are drilling more for gas and oil, but it's not due to your policy. then he went on to say that because we are not drilling on federal and. why the president did not jump on that, i don't know. all the president would have to have said, was, mr. romney, do you think the american public would condone drilling in yellowstone? do you think the american public would condone drilling in yosemite? i just sat back from fly-fishing in montana and i was on federal land fly-fishing. i was on federal land where nothing is going on and i enjoyed that. i don't want to be fly-fishing next to an oil well or fracking liquid that is stored in pits that is poisonous. i just don't understand mr. romney saying we should be drilling like crazy on federal land. that just goes to show how he is uneducated about the circle of life in the natural environments. that's all i h

will clean up the environment. i will help with education and improve education. all of those issues we want to make sure that we concentrate on and work very hard to accomplish those things and also to cut down the budget, the budget crisis that we have. so there's a lot of work ahead. >> it's been nine years and while both men have stepped out of the political arena, former california governor, arnold schwarzenegger, is back in the spotlight, promoting a memoir called "total recall." many are calling it an apology tour. last year the former governor making headlines after coming clean about a secret affair with his family's housekeeper that resulted in a child. listen to what schwarzenegger told david gregory this morning about the indiscretion. >> it was a major screw-up, as you've said, i've hurt my wife, i've hurt the kids. >> are you a man of good character? >> i think so. >> even after everything you've done. >> look, i'm sure you made mistakes, i'm sure a lots of people out there made mistakes. i made my fair share of mistakes and that's what my book is about. >> joining me now in lo

plan will kill 700,000 jobs. i don't want to kill jobs in this environment. let me make one more point. >> leer: at's not an answer-- mr. president? >> we've had this discussion before. >> lehrer: about the idea that in order to reduce the deficit, there has to be revenue in addition to cuts. >> there has to be revenue in addition to cuts. now, governor romney has ruled out revenue. he's ruled out revenue. >> absolutely. >> lehrer: completely. >> look the revenue i get is by more people working, getting higher pay, paying more taxes. that's how we get growth and how we balance the budget. but the idea of taxing people more, putting more people out of work, you'll never get there. you never balance the budget by raising taxes. spain, spain spends 42% of their total economy on government. >> lehrer: okay. >> we're now spending 42% of our economy on government. i don't want to go down the path to spain. i want to go down the path of growth that puts americans to work with more money coming in because they're working. >> lehrer: but, but, mr. president, you're saying in order to get the jo

political environment. but at the same time, you spent years as the democratic party chair, in some ways, being the partisan chief of the party. what would you say to virginians that would convince them that when you go to washington, you'd be not partisan and not simply a loyal lieutenant in harry reid's army. >> i will tell you two things. i served with two presidents. i serve with president bush and president obama. we did not agree on everything. i worked closely on the bush administration on a number of issues that put virginia first. railroads are being built right now largely because of president bush and his secretary of transportation and our ability to work together. we worked with the bush administration in the aftermath of the shootings at virginia tech. i will always be a partner of the nine states, whoever the president is. i also have a track record of working across lines. first, here in richmond. second, as a republican -- as a governor with republican houses. we were the best-managed state in virginia. revested for business all years i was governor, forbes magazine. tho

defense and build highways and education. and building an environment where it is easy for business to employ people and kind of stay out of everybody's way. host: how is it doing? caller: i do not think it is doing very well when minimum wage is hitting $10 an hour in some states. that is an awful lot to employ people. some people like myself, a small businessman, it is hard for me to employ more people when i am having to pay so much for everything in the price of everything is going up. the price of fuel, electricity, food -- the price of everything is going up right now. so i do not think the government is really doing a good job. host: it in the "wall street journal" this morning, another comparison of the two candidates on the definition of patriotism. president barack obama says he wants a new economic patriotism. mitt romney caused the campaign a battle for the soul of america. host: next, louisiana, a democrat. good morning. caller: yes, i would like the government -- [no audio] host: we lost her. with apologies, let's move on to an independent in ohio. caller: good morning

environment in which both men are now running. connell: it is a crazy number but not necessarily a great number. it is 582,000 of 873. you don't have to say the numbers fudge to. it is not that great a number even on the surface. dagen: if you look at these numbers historically they are all over the place. >> the real number is not the official 8% though politically that will give the president some traction. now we are back to the inherited rate which is 7.8. it is perception but remember the real numbers to take a look at is the new jobs created that number 114,000. that is a pathetic number. if i met romney i go to the american people and say president reagan inherited a huge recession. he had a very dire economic crisis. he did the opposite of what president obama did in terms of cutting taxes and reducing government and deregulating and what his recovery look like, month after month of 500, 600, 900,000, over a million jobs in 1983. dagen: back to the original point, mitt romney has to avoid trying to discredit this number. >> he will not do that.

are you going to pay for the tax cut? how will you create jobs and all of this environment. and still all the things that you want to do. just doesn't add up. that is very point that the president made last night. it doesn't add up. >> what mitt romney said last night when he was governor he worked with a democrat house and senate he will work across party lines to make things happen. just not the president that makes things happen. you have to work together. that is how our forefathers meant it. president obama when he had his democrat house and senate he got everything he wanted and still his policies failed. but mitt romney has been proven to make things happen and make things greater. jon: angela -- >> i'm glad you said that please tell your folk on capitol hill. that is exactly what we need in washington right now. which need both parties working together to move us forward. >> maybe need to help obama with communications so he can do better in the next debate. jon: there is a compliment for you. cory, an gell last, thank you both. >> thank you. jenna: some new details about an al qa
